Professor Ovalle talks about leading with kindness and care...

Hello, Cinema Studies Community. As the Cinema Studies team was working night and day to prepare a fall schedule that will keep us safe and healthy on campus amidst a pandemic, a new but sadly familiar crisis shook the world. George Floyd’s death is an important reminder that, for members of our Black community, no day is truly “safe.” As resistance movements march in the streets, we must all carefully revisit the ways in which white power and privilege shape our lives and end others. As a non-Black woman of color, I stand in solidarity with the Black community by listening, learning, and taking action.

Class makes documentaries through remote teaching

“Rich and crazy” is how Sergio B. Sanchez describes the street art he observed growing up in his Chicano community of Santa Ana, California.

Sanchez is now a University of Oregon senior who aspires to use his talent to inspire at-risk youth. That in turn inspired fellow student Noeli Martinez-Gabriel to choose Sanchez as the subject of a class project, just as the class went remote in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

"The Art of Producing" Featuring Award-Winning Producer Ryan Zacarias

The University of Oregon Department of Cinema Studies proudly welcomes award-winning producer Ryan Zacarias for the fifth annual Harlan J. Strauss Visiting Filmmaker Series.

Cinema Studies has been honored to bring the Harlan J. Strauss Visiting Filmmaker Series to Oregon for the past five years. Through the generosity of Harlan (PhD ’74) and Rima Strauss, the Department of Cinema Studies is the recipient of an endowment that brings successful industry filmmakers and emerging talents to campus annually to mentor students and hold public conversations.

Cinema Studies is excited to continue the engaging experience for our students and the film community this spring through a series of remote events made available in virtual formats. In addition to the remote events, Zacarias is mentoring students and guest lecturing in the spring term course “CINE 408:  The Art of Producing.”
